Last spring, the
Conservation Biology programme leader sent out an e-mail about a course run by
the Zoological Society of London (ZSL) on camera trapping survey methods in
Mongolia. The course was led by Nathan Conaboy, ZSL’s field representative in
Mongolia and Oliver Wearn, an Imperial College London student doing his PhD
with the ZSL. Instantly I knew that Mongolia was a place that I wanted to go to.
I also wanted the chance to learn something about camera trapping and its use. And
so I started the nerve-racking path of getting to there.

I travelled to Cape Town, South Africa and completed the 6-month Seabird Care and Conservation internship (January-July 2013) with SANCCOB (The South African Foundation for the Conservation of Coastal Birds) as part of my placement year with the university. There are other internships available: for more information you can visit the SANCCOB website (www.sanccob.co.za) and look at the volunteering tab for the internship section to read more about what’s available.
